Special Issue "Oxidative Potential Caused by Atmospheric Particles"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (7 July 2023) | Viewed by 2063
Airborne particulate matters suspended in air can be divided in coarse (PM < 10 μm, PM10), fine (PM < 2.5 μm, PM2.5) and ultrafine particles (PM < 0.01 μm, PM0.1) based on size. Studies on air pollution and its health effects have been focused greatly due to that ambient air pollution, particularly PM2.5 (aerodynamic diameter less 2.5 micrometers), was the fifth leading risk factor for global mortality. The PMs were originated from a variety of sources including anthropogenic origins such as power, automobile exhaust, combustion, mining, industrial sources, Numerous factors determine the toxicity of the particles because of their heterogeneous components, such as transition metal ions, organic compounds mostly polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Until now toxicological mechanism of the ambient particles is not very clear, oxidative stress theory induced by the PMs is the widely accepted theory. Oxidative stress induced by the components of the ambientes can be used as predictor of adverse health impacts associated with PMs exposure.
We are now trying to organize a special issue on the Journal of Atmosphere to illustrate the oxidative potential induced by ambient particles, and provide more data on the toxicological mechanism of the particles.
The scope of the issue will include but are not limited to, characterization of ambient particles, oxidative stress induced by different components of particles, new methods on assess health risks.
In this Special Issue, we expect to gather high-level studies that allow us to interpret the oxidative stress caused by ambient particles in relation to the different diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
